A concert that will make you want to get up in your chair

Who other than Julia Philippens could do Thomas Beijer’s Jazzvioolconcert justice? Improvising to jazz and classical music is like a second nature to the Fuse frontwoman. Thomas Beijer’s composition, performed by the North Netherlands Symphony unites both worlds – classical and jazz – in a unique manner. 

Thomas Beijer on the Jazzvioolconcert: “I can’t think of any works where both of those things – improvisation and composition – are combined in a way I personally find satisfactory. I’m talking a real combination, an actual fusion, not a piece of ‘classical music’ followed by an improvised violin solo. The one has to inevitably flow out of the other. A new sub-language will emerge. […] It’s going to have to be a work that makes a new, younger audience want to get up in their chairs. I think Julia’s just the person to make that happen.”
